Prisma Cloud helps customers dynamically discover resources and comply with rule-based security policies – such as best practices and industry-specific compliance requirements – in Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud services.
With the proliferation of dynamic IaaS offerings in the public cloud, it is becoming increasingly difficult for companies to keep track of which and also how many resources are being used in cloud computing. Gartner analysts estimate that around 81 percent of companies already have two or more cloud service providers in use.
The success of new cloud solutions, such as container orchestration platforms and serverless functions, further exacerbates the situation for many companies, as this software is often developed and introduced unnoticed by the IT department using agile methods. Those responsible for IT security are then neither able to verify compliance with security policies and regulations, nor do they have the tools to protect cloud-native workloads from cyber threats. Without a central solution, it is difficult to ensure compliance with security policies and data protection requirements in these highly dynamic infrastructures.
Palo Alto Networks' Prisma Cloud helps customers dynamically discover what resources they need and comply with policy-based security policies – such as best practices and industry-specific compliance requirements – on IaaS platforms such as the Google Cloud Platform, AWS, and Microsoft Azure. Based on machine learning, it correlates data and evaluates risks across the cloud environment. It therefore supports customers in implementing central security policies and data protection requirements in highly dynamic cloud services.
The software finds risky configurations and identifies network threats, abnormal user behavior, malware, data loss, and host vulnerabilities in customer cloud applications. With Prisma Cloud, companies can secure every resource throughout the entire application lifecycle in all cloud technology stacks.
